Re: grateful dvd super stuff
lastly, I must add these two fine fine dvd video GD items:
From Anthem to Beauty (a very well made doc with live performances, on the making of Anthem of the Sun, Workingman's Dead and American Beauty).
Backstage Pass (may be o.p.) Justin Kreutzman did a fabulous video collage of rare Dead footage set to Hard To Handle. Plus other stuff on there.
For a fairly complete, up-to-date videography of the GD, visit this page:
- each item can be clicked (in the info circle preceding title of dvd) for further details.
For some reason, they left out the indispensible Acid Test (Key-Z) dvd.
More of my notes on various footage:
The New Year's Eve 1978-1979 show aka Closing of Winterland. Especially cool imho is the guest appearence by John Cipollina jamming with the band on NFA.
Playboy After Dark. (Mountains of the Moon, St. Stephen - 1969. Only a snippet of Lovelight. Great to have a 1969 St. Stephen... Not a 5 star performance but easily a 4 star).
Woodstock outtakes (Includes St. Stephen, tho not a 5 star version or set, still good and better a/v quality than Calibration.
Both this, the below Monterey footage and the Playboy songs are on ytube.)
Montery Pop outtake. (low-fi sound on the circulating clip, but 5 star sound exists right here on LMA, for this Viola Lee Blues.)
Petulia (excellent qual. clip of them doing Viola. Plus cameos elsewhere, and superb Roadblock by Janis and Big Brother).
Panhandle - complete Dancin' in the Streets (on ytube as part of Hippie Temptation); also Panhandle GD outtakes exist that feature clip of a song not avail anywhere else, sung by Garcia.
is my version of Columbia Revolt. GRTUD fits, I thot.
Another fine bit of footage with New added audio is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6qM8nXdZ4iA&feature=related
Here's a rare Dark Star from 1970 and the audio is the actual soundtrack to the footage, cleaned up a bit but - wow!
